Abstract: The Greater Northern Australia Regional Training Network governing Council approved the Rural and Remote Generalist: Allied Health Project, as part of the 2013 GNARTN workplan, in April 2013. The aim of the project was to support the development of clinical training models for allied health professions that meet the needs of northern Australian health services, and rural and remote communities in particular, by mapping and describing the clinical tasks that are or could potentially be safely skill shared within multi-disciplinary teams. The rationale for the project was that there is currently no published comprehensive description at the task-level of the clinical requirements of rural or remote practitioners from allied health professions. This has been a significant limitation to the development of rural and remote-specific clinical training programs and resources, and generalist models of care in allied health teams. The project was conducted over 30 weeks(6/5/13 –30/11/13) and was managed by a 0.8FTE project officer seconded from the Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland, Department of Health.
